Moments I Live For
It's 2 a.m. and I'm finally finished feeding Bridget and she has just dozed back off to sleep. I'm just beginning to doze off myself and hear a small voice call, "Mommy." My first thought, "Does it ever end?" I freeze in my bed, hoping Lily was just saying my name in her dreams. Then I hear her call me two more times. I crawl out of bed. It's cold. I should have turned the heat on last night. I slip into Lily's bed to see what's wrong. As I lay next to her, she wraps her arms around me and says, "I love you." She then rolls over and falls back to sleep. Totally worth being awake at 2 a.m.
